Abstract

We report experimental results of quantitative imaging in supersonic circular jets by using a monochromatic light probe. An expanding cone of light interrogates a three-dimensional volume of a supersonic steady-state flow from a circular jet. The distortion caused to the spherical wave by the presence of the jet is determined through our measuring normal intensity transport. A cone-beam tomographic algorithm is used to invert wave-front distortion to changes in refractive index introduced by the flow. The refractive index is converted into density whose cross sections reveal shock and other characteristics of the flow.
